DIMAPUR, SEP 11 (NPN) | Publish Date: 9/11/2019 11:00:25 AM IST

NSCN(I-M) through its ministry of information and publicity(MIP) has hit out at what it described as “opportunists, deserters, opponents and detractors, who have never fought for the cause(Naga) have now started claiming their shares when solution is around.”

In the statement, NSCN(I-M) posed several questions on those who, it said,  were now claiming harvest but who did not labour for it.  It asked whether they were faithful soldiers fighting against aggressor in the east, west, north or south and whether they were revolutionary patriots who suffered at the hands of the enemies and where were they when “national leaders” were mobilising support at the international arena? NSCN(I-M) also asked where were they when it entered into a cease fire agreement with the government of India and also when NSCN cadres spanned out to villages throughout Nagalim to reach people on all issues? Therefore, it asked on what basis were they now claiming to be stakeholders in the peace process?
NSCN(I-M) also quoted Centre’s Interlocutor and present governor of Nagaland who had purportedly stated that solution for Nagas of Nagaland state was a “non issue.”  It maintained the “NSCN represents Naga people and the national issue”. NSCN(I-M) also said this was recognised by then prime minister Narasimha Rao who said that it(NSCN) represented people and that “ the issue is with you and you have proved yourselves”.  
NSCN(I-M) also reiterated that the ongoing talks was between government of India and NSCN as two entities and therefore, there was no question of stakeholders. It again quoted Ravi who purportedly stated that there would be only one talk and one solution while other groups could be accommodated in the framework agreement. It said that in response, Th.Muivah had said “ they are welcome if they want to be part of the framework agreement.” 
NSCN(I-M) reiterated that it would be a “horrible loss for both Nagas and the Indians” if they missed the second bus( for solution) and reaffirmed the framework agreement as the only meeting point between “ the war-ridden Indians and the Nagas” and also a uniting point for the divided Nagas.
